What are the chances that transmission fluid could get into your oil on a 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac

Not that good although it could happen
You would need a leak inside the radatior between the oil colling system for the transmission and a leaking intake manifold gasket that is letting collant leak into the engine that has trany fluid nixed with it .Of coruse you would see oil floating on top of the antifreeze if you removed the radiator cap or the fluid res
. Also look at the engine oil for white foem this also means collant is getting into the engine oil white smoke out the exhaust sure sign you have a leak someware .

I have GE13 engine .this engine coolant mix to engine oil

drain the oil right away your head gasket needs to be replaced. If you leave the mixed oil and antifreeze in the oil pan you will damage the crank and bearings at this point as long as you didn't over heat it to much you will be able to replace the head gasket and be on your way

Engine oil mixing into coolant

The only place, oil and water share a gasket is the cylinder head gasket, oil and water galleries run through the engine block and head via the head gasket. The cylinder pressure will be OK, it's the oil pressure that's putting the oil in the coolant, the gasket has gone between the water and oil galleries or there is an internal crack (unlikely). A coolant pressure test should show it up.

Milky oil

Milky oil usually indicates a leaking head gasket which is allowing coolant and oil to mix. How does your collant look?

My motor runs very rough even with new spark plugs,, is there anything else I should check? and is it common for a headgasket to leak at 107 000km?

if the engine runs rough after spark plug replacement,you may have a clogged fuel injector perhaps. i would suggest that you purchase lucas fuel injector cleaner and add it to your gas. you may have also just bought some bad gas. if you suspect that, just add 1 bottle of clear rubbing alcohol{not green} clear rubbing alcohol to your gas tank.this will dry up any water thats in your will not affect the engine at all. as for your head gasket,its something you cannot predict any mileage on,but you can prevent it by not letting your engine overheat. never run your engine hot. always keep your collant full.if you suspect a blown head gasket, here are some signs of a blown head gasket. oil in the coolant,coolant mixed in your engine oil{when you pull the engine dipstick out,it appears muddy looking,coolant coming out of your exhaust pipe.these are quite a few examples of a blown head gasket. hope this helps and thank you for choosing

Getting engine oil in radiator

Make sure it is engine oil,and not transmission oil,If it does not run hot,and it is engine oil,the intake is most likely the problem.
